Dear Members, 


At the end of this month we are hosting The Art of Gathering, which will be a collaboration with the Connecticut chapter of the American Choral Directors Association.


Michelle Horsley, Dean

This event, which will be the first of its kind for our chapter, is an opportunity for both of our communities to meet, brainstorm, sing, learn, and share a meal. Featuring reading sessions of choral music with organ accompaniment, console demonstrations, conversations about instruments in the Hartford community, and discussions about challenges that conductors and organists alike are facing, we invite you to this time of singing, learning, and idea-sharing.

AGO members attend for FREE by using the code "AGO" at check-out. 

In April, we will host Peter Krasinski at Central Baptist Church (Hartford, CT) for an evening of theatre organ! Krasinski is an acclaimed silent film organist who will be providing a live soundtrack for a screening of the 1927 sci-fi/thrilled Metropolis. Come out to see this one-of-a-kind event! Bring some friends!
We are excited to announce a AGO Members' Recital which will be a celebration of the new Noack installation, Opus 167, at Sacred Heart Parish in New Britain, CT on May 11th at 7:00pm. AGO members are invited to perform on the new organ as we honor it together. Mark your calendars!

As always, we provide job listing, grants, substitute lists, and organ scholarships year-round. Contact us anytime at

All best,
Michelle Horsley, Dean
